Dani Dyer’s boyfriend Sammy Kimmence has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison.
The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud after posing as a financial investor and scamming two pensioners out of nearly £34k.
In court today, Judge Timothy Mousley QC handed Sammy a sentence of 42 months in jail, which he must serve at least half of.
According to The Mirror, Sammy broke down in tears at Portsmouth Crown Court, and only spoke to confirm his name.
The judge said: “You defrauded two men of significant sums of money, both were elderly gentlemen, neither was a wealthy man.
The second victim said: “In one go all the savings I have accrued over my working life were wiped out. My bank account shows zero.”
“I have been sick with worry at my situation and have lost a lot of weight from stress and worry. It is no exaggeration to say I was left living on the breadline because of his actions and dishonesty.”
Sammy previously denied the charges, but changed his plea to guilty in April.

Dani rekindled her romance with Sammy following her split from Jack Fincham, who she won Love Island with back in 2019.
The couple welcomed their first child together in January – a baby boy named Santiago.
